The company’s quoted aim with the Scout was to build the ‘best in class, mid-size American motorcycle’, or as company boss Steve Menneto more succinctly puts it: “It’s our answer to the Harley Davidson Sportster.” Instead it revels in it with clever styling and tactile machining. It’s also decently brisk. From zero to four or five K the Scout just thumps along, happily, familiarly, like many other V-twin cruisers.Above that, however, the new Indian has an added dimension most of its rivals lack: a willingness to rev to eight thou. Cruising and ‘squirting’ has never blended so well… Although unusual at first (similar to Ducati’s Diavel, the Scout’s cruiser riding position is a little at odds with its willingness to sweep and scratch through the bends) The Scout has enough performance and handling to be a blast anyone can enjoy. Our Indian Scout owners’ reviews show a few people have issues with minor things such as corrosion, while others had slightly more problematic faults such as the handlebar grip coming off mid-ride. Best to have a thorough read through before heading out to check used bikes. Less lavish and extravagant than the £20K Indian Chief range but there’s still plenty of class. Paint and chrome are thick, clocks, mirrors, levers and more are decent, shocks (see above) better than most. Handling-wise, the Scout reminded me most of a Triumph, bikes renowned for their handling aplomb. Think of the Bonneville America but with extra oomph, style and substance, extra everything really. That’s praise indeed. Belt-drive is great. Standard tyres (Indian-badged, Ken Da made) ok in dry. NOK in wet. Front tyre wearing quickly at 4000 miles with a couple of K more, max. Rear ok. Single clock with integrated digital multi-function looks nice, readout adequate but no fuel gauge. Handlebar grip, without warning, came away in my hand. I think this is very poor, never had this on any bike before! Paint fault on master cylinder took various phone calls, visits and photos to sort. Sad to think that Indian have a winner with this bike, but I think the backup will let them down. I will sell my Scout before the 5 year warranty expires and will miss it. I will stick to my BMW GS1200 for the all weather ride but back to Triumph for my high days and holidays ride.Really great bike with a superb engine. Seat comfort not great. Fuel range limiting. Not for the shy as everywhere I go, it draws people with really positive comments. I’d love a fiver for every comment I’ve had saying ”It’s nicer than a Harley!”. I’d be pocketing a lot! Having ridden the Harley Sportster there really is no comparison. It’s far better!

Suspension travel limited, front brake average with annoying groan. Handling surprising good for a cruiser with better ground clearance than expected. Had seat re-foamed for comfort. Hour and a half at a time is enough before aches start spoiling the fun.
5 owners have reviewed their INDIAN SCOUT (2014 – on) and rated it in a number of areas. Read what they have to say and what they like and dislike about the bike below.

Great bike. I have covered 5000 miles on my scout, apart from the handle bar grip coming away from the handle bar mid corner (Warning to all Scout Riders please check your left grip, I have raised my concerns with Indian regarding What I consider a safety issue but have had no response) and paint fault on the brake master cylinder that took a year to sort out, I have had nothing but hours of joy riding my Indian. It would have 5 out of 5 if communication with manufacture was possible! (needs to be a two way thing).

Fabulous – Smooth, sounds nice even with the standard pipes, has a good rev range so that you can hold a gear for overtakes and feels modern and well developed. It’s everything a Harley-Davidson engine should be.

The bike’s only real drawback is that, similar to most cruisers, the suspension isn’t up to enthusiastic riding. The front end bottoms out fairly quickly if you are enjoying yourself and the rear isn’t much better. The seat and ergonomics are good though (I’m 6’00”).
Only slight disappointments are slightly basic switchgear and front brake performance. ‘Signature’ tan leather seat, meanwhile, according to lead project designer Rich Christophe, was “a no brainer”.It also put it a full £3000 more than, say, Triumph’s America (which, admittedly, it both outguns and out-poses). In fact, that price put it in Ducati Monster 1200 and Guzzi Griso LE territory which, while not strictly cruisers, both have justifiable performance and quality claims of their own.

In the metal it’s a good entry-level-to-mid-sized cruiser with more style, authenticity, class and performance than most. For that, it should be a huge success. It outperforms Harley and outstyles Europeans. Our only slight doubt is the price.
I’d NEVER contemplated buying a Harley type bike in 40 years of biking, but a pal bought a Scout 60 and as a total novice mechanically, asked if I’d give it a basic service, so after changing the oil,air filter etc I took it for a test ride and was very pleasantly surprised as I’d once hired a Harley XR1200 while on holiday and was totally underwhelmed by the experience, the only complaint I had with the Scout 60 was although much more powerful and infinitely better handling than the alleged ”sportster” Harley, it still lacked a bit of power, then my pal upgraded to the Scout and after a run on it I was so impressed decided to buy one and have fallen in love with it , it has the power ,class, character and handling Harleys can only dream of and it’s also a wolf in sheep’s clothing, enabling me to have a ball taking fellow bikers by surprise at traffic light drags. don’t get me wrong my Gixer 750 is still my first love but the Scout is just a pleasant relaxing alternative occasionally, but with the power to go with it, something I’d thought I would never say in a million years about a cruiser type bike. Om launch, our only doubt was the price which, we thought, was a tad salty. It’s over a grand more than the closest Harley, the 48, which has far more proven residuals. Between 2001 and 2003, the Indian Motorcycle Company of America, based in Gilroy, California, built a Scout model using proprietary engine and transmission parts.

Cost cutting led to Indian designing a new basic frame for 1932 that would form the basis for the Scout, Chief, and Four frames. The 1932 Standard Scout that was based on this new frame was heavier and bulkier than the 101 frame, and was less successful as a result. The Standard Scout remained in production until 1937.
The negative reaction to the Standard Scout and the failure of the Motoplane led to the creation of the Sport Scout of 1934, with a light frame, girder forks, improved carburation and alloy cylinder heads. The two-piece frame, with the front and rear halves bolted to each other to the top and to the engine at the bottom, was heavier than the Motoplane’s Prince-derived frame, but also stronger and stiffer. The Sport Scout was still 15 pounds heavier than the 101 Scout. A specially-tuned Sport Scout won the first Daytona 200 in 1937.

The 640-B, a military version of the Sport Scout, was tested by the US Army and used on bases within the United States, but was not shipped overseas. Approximately 2,500 were built.
Between 1962 and 1967, New Zealander Burt Munro used a modified 1920 Indian Scout to set flying mile land speed records at the Bonneville Salt Flats. His records were:Designed by Charles B. Franklin, the Scout was introduced in October 1919 as a 1920 model. The Scout had a sidevalve V-twin engine with its transmission bolted to the engine casing, allowing a geared primary drive – the only American v-twin to use this maintenance-free system. The Scout engine initially displaced 606 cc (37 cu in), but the engine size was increased to 745 cc (45 cu in) in 1927 in response to the popularity of the Excelsior Super X. In early 1928, a front brake was added to the Scout.

In 1940 the Sport Scout gained full-skirt fenders, a lower seat height and increased fork rake, and in 1941 Indian added plunger-style rear suspension.The Indian Motorcycle Company of America ended production of motorcycles in 2003 and went into liquidation. The Indian brand was revived by the Indian Motorcycle Company, based in Kings Mountain, North Carolina, in 2006, but the Scout name was not used.

How fast can an Indian Scout go?
Q: How fast can an Indian Scout Bobber go? Top speed of the Scout Bobber is governed at 128 MPH with zero-to-60 time of four seconds and a 12.7-second quarter mile.
The Indian Motorcycle Company of America, based in Gilroy, California, built a Scout model from 2001 to 2003. The 2001 Scout had an 88 cubic inch engine and a five-speed transmission; these were assembled at Indian’s factory from engine parts made by S&S Cycle and transmission parts made by RevTech. The Scout was available in different versions, including Centennial, Springfield and Deluxe editions.

When Indian restarted civilian production in 1946 they produced the Chief only; the Junior Scout, Sport Scout, and Four were discontinued. Engineering work being done on a Model 647 Scout was abandoned in favor of developing a completely new line of lightweight single-cylinder and vertical-twin motorcycles.
In 1948, Indian built 50 units of the 648 Sport Scout. The 648, also called the ”Big Base” Scout, was a homologation special built to qualify the type for racing; as such, it was sold primarily to motorcycle racers. Floyd Emde rode a 648 to victory in the 1948 Daytona 200. The 648 was the last traditional Indian Scout.In 1933, to appease the sporting motorcyclists offended by the replacement of the 101 with the Standard Scout, Indian introduced the Motoplane. This had a Scout engine fitted into the frame of the discontinued Indian Prince single cylinder motorcycle. The Motoplane was also sold as the Pony Scout with the engine displacement reduced to 30.50 cu in (499.8 cc).

In 2011, Polaris Industries bought the Indian Motorcycle Company. For the 2015 model year, under Polaris’s ownership, Indian introduced a new Scout model. The 2015 Scout is a cruiser with a 1,133 cc (69.1 cu in) liquid-cooled, V-twin engine and a frame formed by multiple aluminum alloy castings bolted to each other and to the engine. The Scout came with braided brake lines and a belt instead of a chain which reduced maintenance as well as costs.A lower cost version of the Scout was introduced in 2016 called the Scout Sixty. It is essentially identical to the Scout and uses the same frame, brakes and suspension, but has a smaller 999 cc (61.0 cu in) engine mated to a 5-speed gearbox with a blacked out design. Apart from fifty examples of the 648, a special racing version of the Sport Scout, the Scout was not continued after World War II. In 1949 an all-new motorcycle, with an overhead valve straight-twin engine, was called the Scout; it was enlarged and renamed the Warrior in 1950. The most common Indian motorcycle made for military use in World War II was the 741, a military version of the Thirty-Fifty. These were primarily used by British and Commonwealth forces. Around 5000 were sent to USSR under Lend-Lease Program. Indian sold more than 30,000 units of the 741.

The Indian Scout is a motorcycle built by the Indian Motocycle Company from 1920 to 1949. It rivaled the Chief as Indian’s most important model. The 101 Scout, made from 1928 to 1931, has been called the best motorcycle Indian ever made. A second line of Scouts, with heavier frames, was introduced in 1932 alongside the Standard Scout, which replaced the 101 Scout and shared its frame with the Chief and the Four. The small-displacement Scout and the Sport Scout, introduced in 1934, were continued until the end of civilian production in 1942. Military versions of both models were used by US and other Allied forces during World War II.
The power of the Scout engine was too much for the Prince-derived frame and the Motoplane was discontinued. The less powerful Pony Scout remained in production and was later renamed the Junior Scout. The Pony Scout and the Junior Scout were collectively known as the ”Thirty-Fifty” after their engine displacement in cubic inches.Enthusiasts have differing views on the replacement of the 101 Scout. Fans of Indian’s technical achievements acclaim the 101 Scout as the pinnacle of Indian technology, while fans of classic Indian styling hail its replacement for bringing classic Chief styling to the Scout line. The 101 is still used in wall of death stunt exhibitions.

The economic hardship of the Great Depression pushed Indian to the brink of bankruptcy, and the company was purchased by the DuPont family. In 1931, it was decided to rationalize production by designing a new frame that, with some detail variations, would be used across their entire, new-for-1932 model range of Scout, Chief and Four. Thus the 101 Scout was discontinued, as its unique chassis was as expensive to produce as the 74 cu in (1,210 cc) Chief, and therefore had a small profit margin.
In mid 1928 the Scout Series 101 replaced the original Scout. Designed by Charles B. Franklin, who had designed the original Scout, the 101 Scout had a new frame with more fork rake, a longer wheelbase, and a lower seat height. The geometry of the 101 Scout wheelbase, steering head angle and rear sub-frame were all adopted from the new Indian 401 model which was under development at the same time. The standard Scout 101 was available with a 45 cu in (740 cc) engine, but it was also available with a 37 cu in (610 cc) engine from the original Scout, although this was rarely advertised.Marknadsföringscookies låter dig att skräddarsy annonserna som visas på och utanför vår webbplats efter dina intressen.

Even the 999cc version gives punchy performance: more than enough to satisfy even experienced riders, while the torque is delivered nice and low in the rev range so, no matter what gear you are in, just twist the throttle and enjoy the acceleration!

Is Indian Scout a girl bike?
It is an easy by to throw around but why does that make it a girl’s bike. And literally my wife is very new to biking. And it suits her incredibly. Well because the power is so easy it’s.
The foundations for the Indian Motorcycle Company were laid in 1901, which is two years before Harley Davidson took its first faltering steps toward becoming a manufacturer. The name of the company was changed from The Hendee Manufacturing Company to Indian Motorcycle Manufacturing Company in 1923 and production continued until 1953, when it went out of business, only to be resurrected by Polaris Industries in 2011. This makes Indian one of the oldest motorcycle manufacturing companies in the world, let alone America.The Indian Scout Bobber is the stripped-down version of the Indian Scout, the smallest model in the current Indian range. Because it’s not been designed with long-distance touring in mind, it’s small and light and brilliantly suitable for everyday riding in and around town, but still feels great on the open road, with an engine and chassis that are dynamic and entertaining, up to a point.

The Indian Scout Bobber does have some very good rivals and it is down to personal taste as to whether you think any of them look better. Certainly, none of them ride better or are better made so it really does come down to looks.
All the Scout Bobber models have belt final drive, which is virtually maintenance-free – maybe a bit of adjustment is needed. Even better, the service intervals are 10,000 miles for oil and 16,000 miles for valve clearances. If you own more than one bike, it could take you years to get to the point where you need to check the valve clearances. Oil should be changed every year, no matter what mileage you have done: oil deteriorates and becomes acidic so leaving it sitting in your engine for too long can cause damage that will affect the life of the engine.The Triumph Bonneville Bobber is powered by a parallel twin engine of 1200cc but the power is down against the Indian (77 horsepower for the Triumph against 100 horsepower for the Indian), although torque is about the same. The Triumph is chain drive and has the same oil service interval as the Indian but less for the valve clearance distance (10,000 miles against 16,000 for the Indian).

Indian’s accessories catalog is extensive but the Scout Bobber doesn’t need anything added to it to make it good: it’s already that! The standard seat is comfortable and the forward foot controls are perfectly positioned for an easy riding position. Even the stock exhaust mufflers, while large, have a great sound and aren’t too loud to make everyday riding painful for either the rider or bystanders.

Can a beginner ride an Indian Scout?
The Indian Scout Bobber has all the makings of a very good first bike. In particular, the Scout Bobber Sixty is an ideal entry to Bobber ownership although all 3 Indian Bobbers are low to the ground and have a smooth power delivery so despite being big displacement bikes, they are easy to handle.
The Harley produces a lot more power (21 horsepower) and torque (22 pound-feet) but needs an oil service in half the miles (5,000 miles), although the hydraulic valve tappets will never need looking at. The Harley’s suspension is fully adjustable while the Indian’s has no adjustment and the Sportster S’s front brake is a larger diameter and is clamped by a top-spec Brembo caliper. The Harley features cornering ABS and traction control – the Indian has only single channel ABS (front wheel only). The Harley is around $2,000 more than the Scout Bobber in 1133cc guise.

The Indian Scout Bobber has flat, low ’bars and chopped fenders compared to the Scout. The Scout Bobber Twenty adds spoked wheels and mini ape-hanger ’bars.
If you are after a sporty ride, then, also, the Scout Bobber might not be for you. Whilst the handling and brakes are fine, if you start to push the bike through the turns, you will find the foot pegs scraping very early, the suspension not really up to it and the single front disc having to work very hard to slow things down.The water-cooled 1133cc V-twin engine produces 100 horsepower and 72 pounds-feet of torque, giving the 553-pound Scout Bobber excellent performance. The 999cc v-twin of the Scout Sixty produces 78 horsepower and 65 pound-feet of torque, although the bike weighs as much as the 1133cc Scout Bobber so the performance will be blunted a little.

With 100 horsepower for the 1133cc engine and 78 horsepower for the 999cc engine, the Scout Bobber is plenty fast, although the simple suspension and single front disc brake prevent you from riding it like a sports bike!
The original Scout was introduced in 1920 and continued until 1949 so, when you ride your Indian Scout Bobber, you are riding an important piece of motorcycling history.No problems with the design or build quality at all, nor with performance, but there is limited space to put any luggage so you might struggle to pack enough for a weekend away, unless you are willing to wear a backpack. The Scout Bobber doesn’t come with a pillion seat or pillion foot pegs so you will have to buy those should you wish to carry a passenger.

The Indian Scout Bobber is the smallest model in the Indian range, in terms of its physical size. Lacking the bulk of the larger Indian cruisers and tourers, it is perfect for riding around town but also possesses a sportiness that is entertaining out on the open road. The low seat height helps with low-speed maneuvering, as does the light weight. Above all else, it looks great!
With an exceptionally low seat height, it’s great for shorter riders but, if you are a lot over six feet tall, it might start to feel a little on the small side.Harry has been writing and talking about motorcycles for 15 years, although he’s been riding them for 45 years! After a long career in music, he turned his hand to writing and television work, concentrating on his passion for all things petrol-powered. Harry has written for all major publications in South Africa, both print and digital and produced and presented his own TV show called, imaginatively, The Bike Show, for seven years. He held the position of editor of South Africa’s largest circulation motorcycling magazine before devoting his time to freelance writing on motoring and motorcycling. Born and raised in England, he has lived in South Africa with his family since 2002. Harry has owned examples of Triumph, Norton, BSA, MV Agusta, Honda, BMW, Ducati, Harley Davidson, Kawasaki and Moto Morini motorcycles. He regrets selling all of them.

The Scout Bobber comes in three versions: the Scout Bobber with the 1133cc engine, low bars, and chopped fenders: the Scout Bobber Twenty which is the same mechanically and in terms of the chopped fenders but adds mini ape-hanger handlebars and spoked wheels: and the Scout Bobber Sixty, which has a 999cc engine, five-speed gearbox (in place of the six-speed gearbox of the 1133cc versions) low handlebars and chopped fenders.

Similarly, if you are particularly heavy, the very short two inches of rear suspension travel might simply not be enough to prevent your backside from becoming the rear suspension, something that is very likely with the feet-forward riding position which puts your upper body weight onto the base of your spine.
The suspension on the Triumph is much better and it comes with twin front discs and Brembo calipers. Both the Triumph and the Indian weigh about the same and also cost just about the same as well.While sales of the Indian Scout Bobber have been very good, there are still a lot fewer of them on the road than Harley Davidson Sportsters (either the old air-cooled models or the new Sportster S) so you won’t feel like you’re riding the same bike as everyone else. Also, the old air-cooled Sportster is a bit of a dinosaur and can’t really be classified as a proper rival to the much more modern Indian. No. The Scout Bobber is still in production and, so far, there are three different versions: the Scout Bobber and the Scout Bobber Twenty with the 1133cc engine and the Scout Bobber Sixty, which has the 999cc engine. Building the best doesn’t stop at premium suspension and braking components. Putting the rider in the proper position to maximize performance matters too. Thanks to a gunfighter style solo seat with taller bolster, increased 29.5 degree lean angle and mid controls, riders can ride harder and longer with more confidence and comfort.Everything about Sport Chief was purpose built from the factory to perform. With premium performance components known across the two-wheeled industry, Sport Chief proves high standards never go out of style. When it comes to performance capability and aggressive style, Sport Chief pushes American V-Twin performance cruisers to the next level.
